NOLAz Band plays groove and soul music from New Orleans, LA (NOLA). From The Neville Brothers to Allen Toussaint, traditional brass bands to The Meters, and Lee Dorsey to PJ Morton, there is a particular musical character that stems from New Orleans. NOLAz Band channels this energy to bring a little NOLA to Arizona. An eight-piece ensemble, NOLAz Band is led by Ted Belledin (keys, sax) with vocals, horns, and rhythm. Based in Phoenix, Arizona, NOLAz Band offers upbeat performances with the option of adding a traditional brass band.
